Side Effect Management

It helps to learn more about the side effects from your treatment(s) before you begin, so you will know what to expect. When you know more, you can work with your health care team to manage your quality of life during and after treatment. 

Keep in mind that everyone reacts differently to treatment and experiences side effects differently. Side effects from treatment can be short term and go away after treatment ends, or they may be long term. Talk with your health care team about any side effects you experience, so they can help you cope and manage them.
